Controversial Boss Pedal METAL ZONE Is Updated

Boss’s Metal Zone is for sure the most controversial guitar pedal of the company, if not the most controvertial of all. It’s a love and hate pedal – most guitarists just hate it.

Boss ensures that the new stomp-box, made in Japan,  now boasts an improved clarity and lower noise, along with all-analog audio circuitry and a premium buffer. The features that have remained the same include the three-band EQ and 15dB of boost/cut.

Read the press release:

“For over 25 years, the MT-2 Metal Zone has been one of the most popular and influential compact pedals in the BOSS lineup, with overall sales that are second only to the venerable DS-1 Distortion.”

“Made in Japan and infused with Waza Craft mojo, the MT-2W takes the iconic stomp to new levels of tonal range and versatility.”

Standard mode delivers an evolved version of the original mid-focused Metal Zone tone, while Custom mode introduces a fresh, wide-ranging voice that’s perfectly suited for today’s diverse high-gain styles.”

Cost: $ 170.00
